With Leslie has come a whole new restyling of SWAK Designs and of the brand as a whole. She has designed the new website as well as all of the new pieces you see on the site. Leslie has worked with the team to adjust the fit of SWAK Designs pieces to insure that we are offering an amazing fit and quality with each and every one of our garments.

Leslie styles and directs each and every photoshoot. She is extremely hands on and approaches her role here at SWAK with a fierce passion that radiates like a fire. From her design sketches to fabric selections followed by the actual design of the piece, then the fitting process to approval for production, she has her hands and eyes on every garment. She is always one step ahead designing for the next season and forever inspiring the team to dream and push for more. This woman exudes fashion, art and beauty and she pours it all into her work here at SWAK Designs. HOW LUCKY ARE WE?!
